Gorgeous park, perfect for hot summer days. You can jump into water from the pontoon or tan on the grass by the hydrangea bushes.

Wonderfull little beach in Bellevue. Probably the best in the area unless you go all the way to Seattle. There are lifeguards on duty, bathrooms, a nice sand beach and a dock. Plus the view from the beach is very nice.

Park is on beautiful Lake Washington! There was a dock which went out and people were fishing. The fish they were catching while we were there were Sunnies.

This is a very small park that winds down to a small beach & swimming area. It is very secluded and can be quiet if you go late in the afternoon.

south of off Main Street to find Chism Beach park. I spent 15 years lifeguarding here. You will love it. Great swimming area, picnic areas, children play area. A beautiful place to visit any time of the year.

We often choose to visit this park because it is off the beaten path and much less crowded than some of the other parks. The only issue with this park is the massively steep hill between the parking and the beach. It is terrible for...More
